It takes every member of the family to form the circle that completes our Jewish community including your child with special needs. The Friendship Circle aims to meet the needs of your child in a wonderful, unique way. Teenage volunteers, who are specially trained, become a friend and mentor to your son or daughter, thereby giving them the opportunities of friends, play dates and programs that every child enjoys.

Through our Friends at Home program, your child has the weekly joy of a regular play date, a pair of friends who come to your home just for him or her. While your child is happily learning and being entertained, you will enjoy a regular respite.

The Sunday Circle and Holiday Programming is a program held one Sunday a month. (Extra programs may be introduced trhoughout the year) It will enable you to leave your child in the hands of qualified professionals, and loving volunteers. Your child, one-on-one with a teen friend, will enjoy music, art, story-time, and gym, while you enjoy some free time.

We are currently aiming to expand our programming with more social and extracurricular events like the Bowling League (coming soon). Please stay tuned as we launch new and exciting events for your child & family to enjoy! And of course our volunteers will be there to give your child personal love and attention.

The Friendship Circle is here for you and your child. Our dedicated staff works with the volunteers to be an asset to you and your family. The training that the teens receive encourages them to create an everlasting friendship with your child.

We invite your child to join The Friendship Circle and become a part of the family.
